yet she did nothing but talk about how apparently stupid I am and proved none of my statements wrong. It's typical far-left tactics and you know it. Deflect, deflect, deflect.
And it thrived while their population indulged in orgies, sacrificed cows to pagan gods, and experimented with same sex relationships. Rome fell because it spread itself too thin, treated their conquered territories poorly, allowed nepotism and dictators control the empire, and let Christianity take hold in society.

I honestly don't know why people respond to these TROLL threads it is humanities INTEREST to be "progressive" if it wasn't for progressives like benjimen franklin and george washington who would have freed the slaves granted benjimen Did have a slave of his own but thats beside the point. 300 years ago anyone trying to free the slaves would have been hung drawn and quartered.
However nowadays pritty much anyone trying to own a slave would be looked down upon by society and ridiculed as "lazy" or incompetant not to mention possibly labled as a racist depending on the color of the slave.
As stated in dawkins book The God Dellusion the further you go back in history the more people were racist, intolerant, ignorant or just didn't care about other colors and likely the more years that pass SINCE dawkins wrote his book the more accepting we will become (yes i'm talking to you steriotypical version of the deep south )

I've seen people's comments get censored here for political trolling, bad decorum and other offenses, but this guy starts a thread with the premise that progressives are "filthy, lying communists", launches into a half thought out screed that's more opinion than fact and that's totally kosher? Really...?
"Progressive" is just a friendly name for COMMUNIST!

Individualism is NOT Democratic...that alone shows you don't understand these concepts.
In a Democracy the individual does not matter, but the mayority matters...or in other words the collective matters in a Democracy...
Even Thomas Jefferson himself said it... He was concerned by a tyranny of the mayority,
For the people in the UK, and for other Europeans Winston Churcill himself said..
Democracy is the worst form of government except for all those others that have been tried.
- Winston Churchill
Of course Socialism/Communism are worse, but through "Democracy" a Socialist/Communist form of government can be implemented...
I never accused you of being biased nor was it my intention to take you to task for any bias. I just felt compelled to speak to the irony of qualifying "true socialism" while ignoring the tenets of "true capitalism".
